    Thumbs up configure fetchmail and mail relay for gmail

    hi,

    First of all this is my first experience with zymbra mail server. I am trying to install zymbra mail server with functionality similar to multipop of mdaemon where my server should be able to collect user mail from gmail and then deliver it locally ( I had done same in mdaemon and it was easy to do so). Also I would like to relay all send mail thorugh gmail so that there mails also get synced at gmail. Any help how I could achieve same would be greatly appreciated

    You might, at least, spell the product name correctly.

    Why don't you do the best thing and have the mail delivered directly to your server? If you wish to use Fetchmail the search the forums for details or read the Fetchmail documentation.

    You can find that information in the Administration Guide, the wiki and the forums but again - why don't you deliver the mail directly?

    sorry phoenix for wrong spell.

    reason for not hosting complete independent mail server is for Uptime, as we do have some infrastructure challenge due to which services are not 100% reliable. Configuring mail server in this way helps in achieving highest uptime as in case if my server goes down even i can provide backup through Google cloud services.

    Hopes you understand............

    Homie,
    Sounds like you want google to be your main rea email server that everything comes to, because they are millionaires and servers are always working
    Ok, cool homie.
    Also sounds like you wand to run zimbra. You want zimbra to pull emails down from google to the users on your zimbra server.
    Also sounds like you want zimbra to use google when sending email outbound.

    If that's what you want homie, reply back so I know for sure and I will try to help you out.
    I'm not that bright so I like to KISS (keep it simple cuz I'm stupid, know what I mean)
    These forums have so many bright people they can't accept the fact that some people for whatever reason will never be on their level.
    To me such bright people are a damn waste. I just don't like when people act all bright like they dunno what somebody mean.
    Ask them or leave their post alone, don't belittle them. I digress.

    Holla back man!

    Alright Homie,
    Here we go with what little help I can provide you.
    First, props to the homie vavi, I stole your diagram to make a picture to help out jaideep.tiwari. In the name of OS love, for the cause

    Here's a diagram of what I have running and the setup i will be describing to you in pieces.
    http://www.spectraportal.com/downloa...chitecture.png
    Here's a file that contains all the /etc/bind files , nameserver.conf, and hosts.conf adjustments. So you can check and compare as you go.
    http://www.spectraportal.com/downloa...for_zimbra.txt

    My setup is I use zimbra to receive emails from my ISP's real/main server into my zimbra zccount.
    I actually send a copy of the email to my zimbra account.
    I use my ISP email gateway from within zimbra to send emails outbound.
    I change my Reply-To address in zimbra so mail always comes in via my ISP mail server.
    So that's my setup and how I use zimbra. I think you want the same thing.
    I do this setup using true static IPs and dynamic IPs as well.
    If you search around the forum, they call this the Split-DNS setup.
    I shy away from fancy speak bcuz i KISS ( I ain't too bright )

    So, at this time, let me know that you have a clear understanding of what we are trying to do.
    Post and let me know that you got this piece so far on whatever level.
    What I will post next is my ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS install process.
    This get's you to where you are ready to install zimbra. But I go slowly to avoid mistakes, I ain't too smart homie.

    Next I will also address what I do to let mail.DOMAN_NAME.net really be seen on the Internet.
    For that you will hear about ZoneEdit.com

    Finally, you should be able to see it all come together, but, a little at a time.

    Holla back

    1. Install fetchmail, enable daemon mode in '/etc/defaults/fetchmail' (START_DAEMON=yes)

    2. Create config file as '/etc/fetchmailrc' and make it look like

    set syslog;
    set daemon 120;
    set postmaster "admin@example.com";

    poll "REMOTE SERVER IP/DOMAIN"
    with protocol pop3
    user "accounts@example.com" password "" ####REMOTE SERVER LOGIN###
    smtphost "LOCAL SERVER IP/DOMAIN" smtpname "accounts@example.com"
    3. Start '/etc/init.d/fetchmail start' / restart upon changing config file.
